The usage of time is very essential in Islam. As Muslims, we
should invest our time in those things that will bring benefit to
us in both this life and in the hereafter. We should allow no
time to pass, regardless of how short it is. Here are some brief
tips on how to spend our free time.
Remember and reflect upon Allah: His names, His attrib-
utes, ponder upon His Creation. Glorify him by saying
SubhnaAllah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar. Reflect and
thank Allah for the countless blessings He has bestowed
upon you.
Reflect upon the Hereafter. Ask yourself are you on the
road to paradise or are you on the road to the Hellfire?
Reflect and assess yourself. Take the time to sit down with
yourself, evaluating, and inquire what are my deficiencies
and how can I improve them. Am I involving myself in ac-
tivities which will bring me closer to Allah or activities that
will distant me for Him? Ask yourself, am I obeying Allah
and His messenger?
Supplicate to Allah: Sincerely repenting for your major sins
Seeking knowledge from those who are qualified to teach.
Learn and memorize hadith and follow it up with action.
Read the Quran with understanding and take heed to the
words of Allah.
These are just some tips you can do to use your time in a
beneficial way. Put your priorities in order...
